Ultra violet rays cause 80% of ageing concerns. These harmful rays damage the fibre in the collagen and elastin, causing fine lines and deeper wrinkles to appear, along with sagging skin.
Photo damaged skin looks particularly dehydrated and leads to premature ageing. Excessive exposure can make a person look older than he or she really is.
Ultra violet radiation causes excessive melanin production. Melanin is a dark brown pigment, these melanocytes are stimulated and melanin is deposited to protect the skin from overexposure. This results in darkening of the skin.

Discolouration including age spots, liver spots, and solar lentigenes
